2018 is our 12th Year as the ‘International Best Selling Travel Guide to Thassos’!
The ‘A to Z Guide to Thassos’ was the first book in the unique ‘A to Z’ series of travel guides, renowned for their comprehensive, accurate and impartial approach. Our Thassos travel guide covers all aspects of the island, its history and the many attractions to be found both on Thassos and the neighbouring mainland. The ‘A to Z Travel Club’, hosted on this website, vastly increases the information on Thassos available to the reader. (Travel Club link)
Tony Oswin, author of the ‘A to Z’ series of travel guides, is a British expatriate who now lives on Thassos. He realised the need for such guides during his many holidays on the Greek islands, finding it always difficult, costly and time consuming acquiring comprehensive and up to date information. He also found that the vast majority of travel guides are published and then just re-printed year after year, meaning that the information contained within, ends up inaccurate and out of date, the ‘A to Z’ series is very different:-
Firstly, our guide books are completely revised each year with all the latest news and changes on the islands for the forthcoming summer season.
Secondly, our objective is to offer our readers a unique source of the very latest news and information from the islands. To this end, purchase of any of our books grants you FREE membership of the ‘A to Z Travel Club’, allowing full access to all the Thassos web pages, where you will find the latest news on attractions, festivals, music and cultural events, travel news and a vast range of tourist related information and advice (updated every day during the summer). It also allows us to include a range of ‘member’ discounts offered by businesses on the islands, meaning that rather than costing you, our guides can actually save you money! (Travel Club discounts).
Thirdly, most travel guides ‘pad out’ their publications with pictures of nondescript pretty alleyways and beaches that are of little help to the reader. We wanted to offer much more and at a higher quality than is possible in a ‘paper-back’ format. So to achieve this and at no extra cost to the book purchaser, we moved all the media onto this website. In the Thassos ‘Galleries’, Travel Club members will find over 160 high quality 2D and unique 3D photographs, panoramas, videos and webcams. The photographs have a brief description and the relevant page number in the book, so that you can read more about the subject.
All this is aimed at offering the holidaymaker a series of unique travel guides that accurately and comprehensively cover all the subjects of interest, to help ensure a visit to the Greek islands is truly memorable and problem free.
